Carly Simon is writing a book about her friendship with Jackie O

Carly Simon will detail her long-time friendship with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in a book due this fall.

According to publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Touched by the Sun will be "an intimate, vulnerable, and insightful portrait of the bond that grew between two iconic and starkly different American women." It began with "a chance encounter at a summer party on Martha’s Vineyard [which] blossomed into an improbable but lasting friendship."

In a statement, Simon explained they became friendly when she was writing children's books and the former first lady was a prominent New York editor. "When I first met Jackie, I didn’t imagine we had that much in common much less expect her to become my book editor, confidant, protective mother figure, and mischievous pal... She arrived when I least expected to make a new friend and she stayed up until the time of her death."

Touched by the Sun will go on sale October 22nd. (People.com)
